New Flow bindings?

Has anyone tried out the new Flow NX2 bindings yet? I had the chance to check a pair out and size them up using my boot.

In order to get your boot into the binding, I had to keep them really loose and then tighten the ratchets once I was in and even then it was tough getting the high back to fully lock wihout my heal coming up. The toe cap was too small and didn't cover much of the boot either. I wear a size 11 boot and was using a Large binding. Maybe I was doing something wrong or it'll be easier to use on the mountain when it's actually mounted to a board...but I ended up putting them away and buying a pair of Salomon.

I was also wondering about these, since they finally changed the design after the first time I saw flow bindings in 2002!

I tried Five SE and the M9 SE. The M9 SE was a little easier to get the boot in and out of because the ankle strap was in a slightly different place but you had to mess with the toe cap on both just to get the highback to lock. I'm hoping it was just an issue with it not being actually mounted on the board.
